Based on investigations, Mahfud MD’s ‘breaking news’ has spoken out and Anies has been officially named a suspect in a corruption case, which is not true.
In fact, when watching and listening to the contents of the video, it provides absolutely no evidence or credible information regarding Anies being officially named a suspect in the Formula E case by Mahfud.
Instead, the video discusses allegations against Mahfud who is said to have persuaded President Joko Widodo or Jokowi to make Anies a suspect in a corruption case. In that accusation, Mahfud’s persuasion was said to be an attempt to prevent Anies from running as a presidential candidate in the 2024 presidential election.
However, Mahfud directly denied this accusation. The former Chief Justice of the Constitutional Court (MK) emphasized that none of the cabinet had provided a report to Jokowi regarding Anies, let alone any obstructions regarding the presidential election.
For information, the narrative containing the accusations quoted from the article Ayojakarta.com published on February 1, 2023. The narrative in question is entitled “Mahfud MD Persuades Jokowi to Prevent Anies Baswedan from Advancing in the 2024 Presidential Election with the Weapon of a Legal Case, Really?“
Meanwhile, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has also denied reports that Anies has been named a suspect in the alleged Formula E corruption case.
From the explanation above, Mahfud MD’s narrative has spoken out and named Anies Baswedan as a suspect in the Formula E corruption case, which is a hoax.
The narrative falls into the category of misinformation.
